Suicide Prevention Innovation Grant
Applications are now open for the Suicide Prevention Innovation Grant. The criteria has changed slightly so it’s slightly more flexible than last year’s Grant, so please do take a look. Closing date: 11:59hrs on Sunday 23rd July 2021. Application info and criteria available by following the link below.
The Hampshire and Isle of Wight (Hampshire and IoW) Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) has developed a Suicide Prevention Programme and, as a result, established a Suicide Prevention Innovation Fund to seed-fund voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations to deliver innovative local projects across Hampshire, Southampton, Portsmouth, Frimley and the Isle of Wight. These projects will be embedded in communities and will be responsive to local needs as expressed by service users, people with lived experience and ‘hard to reach’ groups.
Grants of up to £10,000 are available and bids will reflect national and local priorities for the Fund, and the principles which guide the work of the Suicide Prevention Programme.
The purpose of the Innovation Fund is to support innovative, community-based initiatives that explicitly address needs around self-harm and suicide prevention. Projects should not seek to replicate statutory services; instead, applications should address how the proposed project will better engage citizens in services.
